How to install the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition Simple Reticle Mod on PC

GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition is one of the biggest disappointments of the year, and the collection has one of the lowest Metacritic user scores of all time. It’s very sad to see three classic titles relaunch in such a poor state, but Rockstart has acknowledged the issues, and have confirmed that they are working on it. Hopefully, with multiple patches, the games will be up to expectations, and look, and run as fans had hoped. In the meanwhile, PC modders have taken up to the task to improve the game, and fix whatever they can. Here is how you can install the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition Simple Reticle Mod.

We have covered a few mods before, including one that fixes the awful rain effect, and another one that removes the white outlines around NPCs, and weapons. Rockstar previously removed the ability to purchase The Trilogy from storefronts, but after the poor launch, have added those back as well. Players that purchased the new collection also received the older versions for free.

If you have played the new trilogy, you’ll notice how the reticle is a bit distracting. It’s large, and takes up a considerable part of the screen, adding a visual effect that not everyone likes. Players used to the simple dotted reticle can find it annoying, but you can mod it out. The mod has been created by NexusMods user Anon2971.

To install it, follow the steps below.

  • Head over to the following link, and download the mod files for the entry you want
  • You have to click the MANUAL DOWNLOAD button as shown below
